The town’s disaster management arm currently has 16 responders on standby, including Arthur Parantar, who saved the boy’s life.

“For two years now, we have been operating 24/7 so we are trying to equip the right skillset to Argaoanons through training. All of our Argao MDRRMO responders are speakers and trainers as well,” Kent Dalmao Rizon, chief of Argao MDRRMO, said.

Meanwhile, following the massive landslide that hit Barangay Tinaan, City of Naga, the municipal government of Argao has also extended their assistance through the town’s Coal Miner Rescue Team.
